Helping People & Species In Need
Nature and human societies are under great stress in the 21st century; and as privileged and knowledgeable people it's up to us to help where and when we can. Tembusu is named after a tree, and therefore feels a special responsibility toward biodiversity, the natural environment, and sustainability. Our five houses — Gaja, Ora, Ponya, Shan, and Tancho — are named after endangered Asian animal species, so we feel a particular affection for them. Our students are also involved in projects, both within Singapore and in neighbouring countries, dedicated to actively helping the less fortunate – especially children and the elderly.
